The building has experienced an employment crisis that has raised interest in automation for several years. The crisis in the health care industry has only accelerated the trend. This leading to automation enterprises moving from car production to construction, where automation is expected to grow by up to 30% in the coming years. The following examines the current capacities, future prospects and incorporation into mainstream practice and design influences for construction automation.
In the face of labour shortages, the increase in project number and a desire to minimise its impact on the environment, the construction industry uses automation to increase productivity, reduce costs and reduce waste. “In terms of robot density and automation, the automotive industry was almost 50 years ago in construction. It has a lower point of departure, but it grows more quickly.” The ABB Chairman of Robotics and Discrete Automation Sami Atiya adds According to a pre- pandemic study carried out in McKinsey Global Institute, comprising 54 nations and 78% of the global labour market, it was possible to automate 44% of construction activity.
Robotic technology can only be used for very specialised work thanks to traditional construction methods and materials. The digital manufacturing process, whether by robotic or additive manufacturing, has the potential to rework the building process, as demonstrated by the experimental pavilions developed over many years by the ICD and the ITS, showing both materials and telecommunications innovation
In 2018, Dubai announced that by 2025, 25% of its new buildings would have been 3D printed, but that the deadline is now replaced by 2030. The first fully functional and permanently occupied 3D print office building in Dubai at the time was the Killa Design and Gensler’s Office of the Future. Following this, the building of Dubai, the largest 3D printed building in the world, with only three staff, made another breakthrough in 2019. Whilst the ambitious objective is not guaranteed, local decision makers are developing codes for the construction of additives.
Automation is widely accepted to lead to a new era of increasingly custom design, which ensures more accuracy and precise construction throughout and also saves time. In many robotic construction procedures, the geometrical complexity of a component is usually unimportant and does not affect the prices which enable the construction of complex forms. Automation makes it possible to explore new aesthetics, changing both design and building processes.
